Good morning folks. If you have been itching for some European Soccer news, here are some tidbits to tide you over:
Man City eyeing Ronaldinho bid
That other team in Manchester is reportedly lining up a bid for disgruntled Barcelona star Ronaldinho. Yes, I know, you can file this one under the "What are they smoking" department but Ronaldinho’s brother/agent was spotted at a Man City match recently. So should we buy it? No, not really, but you must admit that a Manchester Derby with Ronaldinho on one side and Cristiano Ronaldo on the other would make for great theater.
Cech has facial surgery
Chelsea goalkeeper Peter Cech was on the verge of coming back from an ankle injury after missing nine matches but the Czech goalkeeper is out again after suffering facial and jaw injuries during a training session over the weekend. The injury means that Carlo Cudicini will remain as the Blues’ starting goalkeeper for the team’s crucial Champions League quarterfinal second-leg against Fenerbahce on Tuesday.
Peter Crouch wants a new club
Everybody’s favorite too-tall forward has finally figured out what most of us have known for months now. He needs to leave Liverpool to get steady minutes. Crouch admitted that he will likely leave Anfield in search of a starting job somewhere.
Gunners lose Rosicky for season
Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky is out for the rest of the EPL season and might miss the European Championships with a knee injury that shows no signs of improving. It is yet another blow for an Arsenal squad that has seen a dream season turn into a nightmare pretty quickly.
